Dhurrie Rug Cleaning Tips

Standard

I was digging around on ole Pinterest for pointers on how best to clean a color fast dhurrie rug.  I remembered on one or two PCS in the past using dish soap and a scrub brush on a driveway or two but figured there had to be a more magical mix that helped with another decade or two of wear, and dog smell.

A pal pointed me in this direction: http://laundry.about.com/u/sty/laundryproblems/Your-Laundry-Questions-And-Answers/How-to-Remove-Yellow-Age-Spots-From-Wool-Clothes.htm

“Mix a solution of oxygen-based bleach (OxiClean, Clorox 2, Country Save BleachPurex 2 Color Safe Bleach) and cool water. Follow the package directions as the amount of product to use per gallon of water. DO NOT USE CHLORINE BLEACH. Completely submerge the garments and allow them to soak overnight. Check the stained areas. If they are gone, wash as usual. If the stain remains, mix a new solution and repeat the process. It may take several soakings to remove the stains depending on what caused them and how dark they are.”

It’s primarily for older wool clothing but compared to a rug, is considered a gentle cleaning solution so I’ll be giving it a whirl.  After hand painting a fence, it’s par for the course this season.  I should have amazing arms before the season is over!

  1. Eek, the one important pointer for the actual “soaking”- use a child sized wading pool. My ocd cleaning pal uses hers this time of year (when it’s a little too chilly to have the pool set up for the season) to scrub car seats, fabric sporting folding seats, dog crates and more. . .says she feels she REALLY gets her money worth with the extra uses.
